Term Definition
education

a complex term which refers to the process whether planned or not formal or not by which humans develop in ways deemed to be socially acceptable in terms of their knowledge understanding skills attitudes and judgements. State schooling is aimed at providing education but it may be developed elsewhere or even in spite of schooling as some critics suggest. It is certainly the case that some aspects of schooling might not be considered educational and also certainly the case that not all education is provided by schooling.
